Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh to host 2019 Golden Globes ceremony

Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga

Actress, Supporting Role, Limited Series or Movie Made for Television: Alex Borstein, "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel"; Patricia Clarkson, "Sharp Objects"; Penelope Cruz, "The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story"; Thandie Newton, "Westworld"; Yvonne Strahovski, "The Handmaid's Tale".

The Golden Globes and other awards - including those from critics groups and industry guilds - are closely watched as possible bellwethers for the Oscars, still considered the grand prize, even in this age of awards saturation and declining ratings.

The 76th Golden Globes will take place at the Beverly Hilton, Los Angeles, on January 6 2019 at 5pm local time (1am in the UK).

"We're excited to welcome Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg as co-hosts of Hollywood's Party of the Year", HFPA president Meher Tatna said in a statement. Samberg won two Golden Globes in 2014 for his work as an actor and a producer on Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

In an interview earlier this year, the former Grey's Anatomy star said she enjoyed "delving deeply into a piece about female psychology".

Neither Samberg nor Oh has hosted the Golden Globes before.

He was the 2015 Emmy Awards host, while Oh is a newcomer to handling emcee duties for a major ceremony. Seth Meyers hosted the ceremony in 2018.

Paul Schrader's punishing drama "First Reformed" about a protestant minister played by Ethan Hawke got a handful of Independent Spirit Award nominations, was selected by the National Board of Review and AFI as one of the top films of the year and won big at the Gotham Awards.

"Black Panther" is looking like the answer to Hollywood's prayers as the industry embarks on awards season, adding blockbuster sizzle to an annual ritual that has been reluctant to acknowledge its costume-clad box-office stars.

The cast of the Marvel movie recently awarded the first recipient of The Black Panther Scholarship, which funds a full grant to Loyola Marymount University worth $250,000. (The HFPA has never recognized her for Fresh Off the Boat.) While Wu scored in best actress in a musical or comedy and the film was nominated for best musical or comedy, it feels a bit bittersweet, as Michelle Yeoh was left off the best supporting actress list.

Screenplay, Motion Picture: Alfonso Cuaron, "Roma"; Deborah Davis and Tony McNamara, "The Favourite"; Barry Jenkins, "If Beale Street Could Talk"; Adam McKay, "Vice"; Nick Vallelonga, Brian Currie, Peter Farrelly, "Green Book".

Sacha Baron Cohen was also nominated for his series Who Is America? . Back in 2016, Deadpool earned a nomination in the Best Musical or Comedy category.

Bob Odenkirk: For the first time in four years, the "Better Call Saul" actor was not nominated in the best dramatic actor category.

Showbusiness awards organisers have been under pressure in recent years to diversify hosts and nominees to include more women and people of colour.

The Golden Globe nominations came down this morning and you guys, who is going to tell the HFPA that they forgot about Atlanta?
